Girl in the Song {Book Review}

Girl in the Song: The True Story of a Young Woman Who Lost Her Way--and the Miracle That Led Her HomeGirl in the Song: The True Story of a Young Woman Who Lost Her Way–and the Miracle That Led Her Home by Chrissy Cymbala Toledo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Girl in the Song: The True Story of a Young Woman Who Lost Her Way–and the Miracle That Led Her Home is an engaging true story. The main lead in this book has it all yet she stumbles and falls away from God, her friends, and her family leading a life a of lies and deception at every turn.

Chrissy struggles with who she is never feeling good enough or perfect and obsesses over finding that through a relationship with a guy that is quite destructive to her life. She finds herself lost and lonely for many years struggling with finding a love that can only come from God.

Though not all us may walk the same path as Chrissy, I feel there’s something we all can take away from her story in one way or another. It’s been an amazing read from start to finish to see how through it all how she was delivered by the redemptive love of our Lord and Saviour! To realize that we are never far away enough to not be forgiven gives one such hope and peace for living a life worthy of who we were created to be.

joseph

Joseph and the Colorful Coat By Brendan Powell Smith is just one of many other stories in The Brick Bible for Kids series. In using LEGO , these renditions of well known Bible stories are sure to capture the interest of children of all ages. The story is completely illustrated using LEGO bricks and is done very well. The scenes chosen for the story stick true to the era, specific place in time, and culture. For example there’s pyramids, walls with Egyptian hieroglyphics, animals such as goats, cows, camels, and so forth. The characters attire and hair styles were was chosen well. I appreciate all the attention to detail that was obviously intricately thought out.
